Transmission at 60000 miles.
Engine at 72000, and still broke.
If you have a 2004 Nissan Maxima, SELL IT AS SOON AS YOU CAN!!! I bought my Maxima in 2003. At 60000, the transmission was replaced. It gets worse from there.
I am a high mileage driver, so I am at 105000 miles, and I’m telling you it has been a nightmare. I had the extended warranty, so a lot of problems I didn’t have to pay full value for.
The car was burning oil very quickly, and had a grinding noise coming from the engine. I have my oil changes every 3000 miles at the dealership. It was burning oil and had a leak.
First, the dealership failed to correctly identify the problem. I was told it was an O ring. My engine has been torn down three times. From December 2006 until now, this car had major ENGINE problems. It has been in the shop. I’m not sure if they know how to repair the engine and have refused to replace it.
The car runs well for 1000-3000 miles, and then is back in the shop. PLEASE FILE A COMPLAINT WITH NISSAN AND NHTSA.GOV
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
